Lazio enjoyed a mesmerising home victory against Parma at the Stadio Olympico on Wednesday. Both Lazio and Parma came from defeats in their previous league games. Lazio were looking to get back winning ways after losing their last game 2-0 to Fiorentina. Parma, on the other hand, lost 5-2 in the last match they played against Atalanta. After today’s result, Lazio and Parma currently occupy 6th and 19th spots in the league, with 67 points and 20 points respectively after 36 matches.
